Argon Electronics has launched a new detector simulator that offers CBRN/HazMat response training instructors yet another way to enhance the reality of exercises. The Argon RADSIM 44-9-SIM is a versatile simulated detector probe for training in the use of Ludlum’s 44-9 GM pancake-type detector, and can be used with an extensive range of Ludlum survey meters, rate meters and scalers.
Argon Electronics is to support research and development into combating the CBRN threat by sponsoring the upcoming CBRNe Summit, which takes place at Brno, Czech Republic between 26th and 28th March 2014. The event will bring experts and senior officials from across Europe to discuss the latest techniques for detecting a threat. Argon Electronics, a world leader in CBRN and HazMat simulation and training aids, will add its own unique expertise and experience to the growing body of knowledge on the subject.
Argon Electronics has been contracted by the United States Air Force through the Air Force Civil Engineer Center to deliver their PlumeSIM CBRN training system to enhance CBRN exercises at the Silver Flag Exercise Site at Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida.
Word leader in CBRN and HazMat training equipment, Argon Electronics will be showcasing its latest simulators at CBRN First Response, 11-12 February 2014 in Leicester. Argon’s depth of expertise in providing advanced equipment to national response teams across the globe will help attendees to fully understand the issues surrounding training and simulation for CBRN/HazMat response – a theme which is key focus of this event.
Argon Electronics and CANBERRA have signed a strategic agreement enabling Argon to manufacture simulators for users of CANBERRA radiation detectors. The agreement formalises the existing arrangement between the two companies, which has been very successful and has resulted in the availability of a number of important simulators for CANBERRA products and CANBERRA customers.
Argon Electronics is exhibiting at Defexpo India between 6th and 9th February 2014, demonstrating its on-going commitment to assisting India in the implementation and procurement of its CBRNe response capability. Defexpo India 2014, which this year takes place at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, is coordinated by the Defence Exhibition Organisation, an agency that forms part of India’s Ministry of Defence.
Argon Electronics will be demonstrating its superb range of CBRN / HazMat training simulators at I/ITSEC Orlando, Florida (December 2nd–5th) and showing delegates how they enhance both the quality and safety of CBRN training. Among the innovations on show will be PlumeSIM®, Argon’s wide area CBRN / HazMat field exercise and table training software. PlumeSIM® enables instructors to configure simulated chemical and radiological releases, producing virtual dispersal plumes and hot spots that can be set up quickly and safely for trainees to detect.
Argon Electronics have been accepted as a signatory of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority Supply Chain Charter. The NDA Supply Chain Charter has been established to help deliver good working relations and improve planning and performance through all tiers of the supply chain supporting the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority estate.
Argon has appointed Germany’s OWR GmbH, a technology and systems solution provider skilled in addressing complex situations in the field of CBRN protection as a sales and distribution channel for its world leading CBRN simulation systems. The deal will provide local customers with easier access to Argon Electronics’ expanding range of simulators, which are improving the quality and efficiency of CBRN response training across the globe.
